LANSING, Michigan – The Michigan Democratic Party announced today that U.S. Senator Kamala D. Harris (D-CA) will serve as special guest speaker for the Party’s annual Legacy Dinner on Saturday, April 14, 2018, at Cobo Center in Detroit. This year, Michigan Democrats will celebrate the Legacy of Women in Politics.
“We are thrilled to announce U.S. Senator Kamala Harris as our special guest speaker for this year’s Michigan Democratic Party Legacy Dinner,” said Lavora Barnes, MDP Executive Director. “Honoring the Legacy of Women in Politics in 2018 is about looking toward the road ahead as much as celebrating the path that got us to where we are now. No longer is it the sole priority of women in positions of power to blaze a trail for the next generation. It is also our responsibility to expect, seek, and demand the power of these positions by running, winning, and leading according to no tradition or expectation other than our own. Senator Kamala Harris embodies that leadership, lives by that example and represents what is possible when women in politics make their voices heard and refuse to accept the status quo.”
This year’s Legacy Dinner will take place on Saturday, April 14, 2018, at Cobo Center in Detroit, Michigan. Tickets can be purchased online at www.michigandems.com/legacy2018. Media registration information will be sent by advisory prior to the event.
